I own the movie Honey
because I love all sorts of dance movies. Maybe I'm too old to watch these teen movies, but I love them! I also saw the movie Step Up 2

I just know some of the outfits are worth imitating! So, for the hip hop dancer in you, here are a couple of styles I loved from two dance movies and ways to copy the look.
